Over the last two days, Binary Defense has observed a reduction of Qakbot malware distribution campaigns. Typically, Qakbot releases a new botgroup each day, incrementing the botgroup counter by one for each new botgroup released. This has been a continuous trend since early April. However, recently Qakbot has been indicating the possibility of a hiatus, evident in part by the lack of new botgroup campaigns on both Wednesday and Thursday. This may be a sign that Durak Group is slowing down botnet operations in preparation for a break.
